I know I mention it often but I'm so proud of this young man.
He has been made captain of the West Gambier Under 14's cricket team for this season, it's a great boost for him and the responsibility he now has will be a challenge at times, but I know he will excel in the position.
Dan had try-outs for Kerr Shield last week and has been selected again this year.
Yesterday he had try-outs for Country Cup which is played over a week in Adelaide, he had a very good chance of selection this year, but unfortunately it all come crashing down.
He had to withdraw from the selection half way through due to an elbow injury he received playing the day before. This was a very hard decision he had to make, but it was the right one as we found out at the physiotherapist today.
Dan was so upset yesterday and in a lot of pain but he stayed and cheered on his friends while they were put through their paces.
So here is my very sad boy with his ice packs on.
And here is his strapped arm (he's smiling because it is completely numb)
Dan now misses a match tomorrow and his club games for the next 2 weeks then hopefully he will be able to play the first Kerr Shield game Sunday week.
Chin up Dan, it will get better.
